Talented children and teens will be selling their arts, crafts and culinary treats. Shop their products and visit with other young entrepreneurs who will be promoting their business services.

The North Andover Merchant's Association, along with the Joseph N. Hermann Youth Center, is proud to host the 2nd Annual North Andover Junior Merchant's Expo.  This event will provide an opportunity for kids to sell their handmade crafts and artwork or promote their business services.  The event is open to, but not limited to, musicians, lawn care service, computer experts, photography services, and bakers.  You will be able to sell your products and promote your business by handing out business cards and showing photos or videos of the service you provide.

The community embraced this event last year.  Our hope is that the event can support children as creators and entrepreneurs and encourages them to work with their hands, learn project management skills, put mathematics to use, and explore their creative self-expression.
